Lavender Moon Balm (August 2013)

Here in the heart of my belly

There is room for balm

Strength in the softness

Love in the support

Purple and lavender, black and silver

Taking the gravity off my body in thrilling swoops

A silver fulcrum

Balance and lever both

In the soothing nourishment of this soft light

There beats an impulse toward freedom

And freedom in the impulse

Both
